Annapolis steps up to the plate again!

On Saturday, January 25, 2020, Fado Irish Pub and Katcef Brothers organized an “Australia Day” benefit for the human and wildlife victims of the Australian Bushfires. Two charities were selected to receive funds raised at the event: the Australian Red Cross and WIRES, an Australian wildlife charity.

The event was held at Fado Irish Pub in Annapolis and Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley, a native of Perth, Australia, was enlisted to attend and present live and silent auctions. Mayor Buckley enlisted the help of “Roos2You,” a kangaroo and wallaby rescue located in Germantown Maryland to volunteer to bring a baby wallaby to the event.

A variety of businesses and organizations donated prizes for the silent auction. Bands donated their time to entertain, including Dublin 5, Mac & Blue, Long Time Coming and East is East. With a little bit of promotion and  $5 suggested donation at the door,  the public turned out en masse.

Acting Mayor Rhonda Pindell Charles (Mayor Buckley had to attend to a family emergency back in Perth and is out of the country), joined representatives from Katcef Brothers, Anheuser Busch and Fado, and a check was unveiled for the total raised —  $13,496.
